Sonar: Code Quality Metrics Made Easy
You're serious about improving the quality of your code base, but with 10,000 lines of code, where do you start and how do you ensure the greatest ROI for the re-work your team members will perform?
Sonar is an open source tool that brings together the best of breed static and dynamic analysis of Java projects. The result is a unified view of problematic areas of your code on a time-line basis, allowing the team to attack the problems with the best ROI, and maintain a more watchful eye for positive and risky trends in the codebase in the future.
This talk will show you Sonar from the ground up and explain 10 critical metrics that affect your code's flexibility, stability, and durability.
Prerequisite: Basic familiarity with Ant, Maven or Gradle builds and a desire to measure the quality of your code base.
